An Explosion of Cats in Phoenix During Covid

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (10-31-2022) #803C: Sami Carroccio, director of Cat Cavorting in Phoenix, talks about her small but mighty TNR group — which consists just of her, a social media volunteer, and two other trappers — and the challenges they faced during the height of the pandemic when veterinarians were unavailable to spay and neuter the cats they trapped so there was an explosion of cats.
